I am also an experienced deep tissue, sport, Swedish, myofascial manipulation and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation.



I have graduated from NOVA Medical Massage Therapy School where I studied anatomy, physiology and kinesiology for 5 years. I have done my extensive final case study about sciatic pain management and lumbar disc herniation. In addition to that I took a Registered Nurse course for 4 semesters at Germanna College, furthermore was an instructor of medical massage practical application, anatomy, pathology and patient assessment in Columbia College.



I have a great reputation from Washington, D.C. to Richmond, getting referrals from chiropractors, physical therapists, doctor’s offices and hospitals. I rehabilitate patients after an injury and those who suffer in chronic pain. I also improve the performance of athletes and prevent future injury.



I also have over 10 years of experience of training competitive athletes.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork services

by Andrew on Feb 23
Laz was recommended by my physical therapist as the most knowledgeable and talented therapist to help me with numerous post surgery muscle and tendon issues. Immediately in session 1 he relieved a lot of my pain. He then gave me targeted stretches and strengthening exercises to do on my own. He was so great that I booked weekly massages as a part of my on going post surgery rehab.

Not only is he skilled in his craft, he took the extra time to teach me how to improve without his intervention. He is the best!

I suffered severe injuries to my neck and back in an accident in 1993. Since that time I have had several hundreds of massages from dozens of massage therapist. I can tell you that Laz is one of the absolute best. He has an expert understanding of anatomy. I don't feel like he is just pushing on me blindly. He is able to recognize the knots and tightness in my body and help to release those areas. I am quite particular about the type of massage I receive. I am no the relaxation swedish massage type person. I get massages because I am in severe pain and need help to keep my body moving. Laz is excellent for doing this. Matthew Morris

Laszlo is by far the best healer I have ever encountered. He knows muscles and puts his knowledge to work with manual therapies that release triggers and let pain leave the body. I've been to other massage therapists, chiropractors, and even physical therapists, and Laszlo tops them all. Never have I had such relieve from sore and bothersome muscles and joint pain than after a session with Laszlo. Amazing!

Are you kidding? Laz is a GIFT from GOD!!
by Susanna on Jan 09
Laszlo is definitely the best of all the medical therapists I have ever encountered. Not only is he highly knowledgable about human anatomy, he knows exactly how to fix the problem and make you feel better. After only about one treatment, the pain in my shoulder almost disappeared.. A pain that I had been suffering with for months.. Seems like a miracle! Indeed, Laszlo Balazs performs miracles! Highly recommend this expert professional! Thank you, Laszlo! Dr. S. M.
